It pulled really good in this heat tonight to almost 20lbs boost with meth
A bit melodramatic don't you think? I guess I could have fluffed up my verbiage a bit but my questions in the comments are still valid.

" Rubbernecking and people that don't know how to merge make my blood boil.

I also hate when you get stuck behind the morons that are causing all the traffic then when you blow past them they act like they weren't doing anything wrong. Like goddammit did you not see the line of cars in your rearview mirror?! "

" In general, since we are all automotive enthusiasts here, I imagine we are all pretty good drivers.

Sadly, that just means we are in the minority.

I try to rarely complain, but I finally had to put together a list of my biggest frustrations while driving

Agree? Disagree? Other additions?

" So that everyone is clear, this is NOT The kit on my M3.

This is the kit off David Liggins 2006 E46 M3 from Seattle, Wa.

Car is being parted out.

This thread is for the HPF stage 2 Turbo kit

Relatively young kit, has only 8k miles on it "

JET replied to the thread N55 135i dyno w/ Vargas Stage2 Turbo.
" ABR - I would love to see some data backing this claim up. In a turbo application more CFM does not always equal more power. You actually lose velocity, but if the head is one of the limiting factors then you can gain HP. If the turbo is the limiting factor, then porting the head if it is already free flowing may be worthless. I haven't seen anyone else try this so getting some info out there if it is a good mod will get you more business! "

nafoo replied to the thread BMW F80 M3 F82 M4 S55 inline-6 ECU (engine control unit) already cracked and flashable?.
" When you look at the New M3/M4 it performs a lot like a FBO N54 with upgraded turbos. Don't you guys think BMW pays attention to the aftermarket scene and plans accordingly?

Wouldn't BMW want people tuning their cars to extract all the potential they can? Maybe this slip up was planned?

Gotta stay relevant when compared to American muscle, right? "

" As far as I know the F3x ECU has been tunable for awhile via a boot-loader (removing ECU to flash and soldering to it), but I've yet to hear of OBDII flashing for it. I hope it pans out as we're going to need flashing capability to tune for larger turbos, 100% E85, etc! "

@BuraQ, the ROM is really the easy part of figuring out how to flash the car. The ROM is just the data that you are manipulating. The hard part about flashing is figured out HOW to get the DME to accept the modified data...

If I were a betting man I'd bet 100% against you here. I Highly doubt BMW has let the key slip out. Extremely unlikely, if it has, then someone has really fucked up. They are most likely just looking for exploits in the rom with security this high. If the key did get out, they would probably just change the key for all cars moving forward, which is essentially all of them. "

Xearom3 replied to the thread Another Custom Single Turbo N54 in the works.
" Small update:

Downpipes/dumptube materials, intercooler piping, v-band assemblies, and air filter showed up yesterday. Kinda took the night off last night, so no progress.




I still need to figure out something on the exhaust manifold studs. The factory ones are too short. I did notice that the intake manifold studs are the same size and thread pitch and are much longer. I'm considering ordering them to see if they would work. Assuming they work, they'd probably have to cut down some.

Any suggestions? "
